The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon simply has the best antics up their sleeves especially with musician guests. Host Jimmy Fallon has been known to provide the best entertainment value with musical rendition games, lipsync battles, and singer impressions, at the very least. In a popular musical segment, Classroom Instruments, Jimmy Fallon and his guests perform one of their hits, but with kiddie instruments. Backed by Fallon’s studio band The Roots, the somewhat absurd feat actually turns into an enjoyable performance. Jimmy Fallon has also been known to be a music enthusiast, singing whenever he can, and this segment is no exception.
With instruments ranging from xylophones and melodicas, up to the bizarre wood block and kazoo, Fallon and The Roots sure know how to deliver. On an episode in May 16th, particularly, Jimmy was joined by no other than the legendary rock band The Who, survived by vocalist Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend. With Daltrey singing lead vocals and Townshend on the ukulele, the group was set to rock on to The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again“. Check out the video below for the fun performance by the rag-tag group!
Nothing but pure, unadulterated fun for the legendary rockers who gave their best performing, with Daltrey’s still powerful vocals leading the charge, and Townshend religiously strumming on his petite instrument. Fallon and The Roots also step up their game, making for a multi-dimensional performance that was enjoyed by everybody in that room, and by anyone who has watched the video as well.
